## Calculate final temperature from phase change: cooling soda with ice cubes

Three ice cubes are used to chill a soda at $\text{20º}\text{C}$ with mass . The ice is at $0º\text{C}$ and each ice cube has a mass of 6.0 g. Assume that the soda is kept in a foam container so that heat loss can be ignored. Assume the soda has the same heat capacity as water. Find the final temperature when all ice has melted.

Strategy

The ice cubes are at the melting temperature of $0º\text{C}$ . Heat is transferred from the soda to the ice for melting. Melting of ice occurs in two steps: first the phase change occurs and solid (ice) transforms into liquid water at the melting temperature, then the temperature of this water rises. Melting yields water at $0º\text{C}$ , so more heat is transferred from the soda to this water until the water plus soda system reaches thermal equilibrium,

${Q}_{\text{ice}}=-{Q}_{\text{soda}}\text{.}$

The heat transferred to the ice is ${Q}_{\text{ice}}={m}_{\text{ice}}{L}_{\text{f}}+{m}_{\text{ice}}{c}_{\text{W}}\left({T}_{\text{f}}-0º\text{C}\right)$ . The heat given off by the soda is ${Q}_{\text{soda}}={m}_{\text{soda}}{c}_{\text{W}}\left({T}_{\text{f}}-\text{20º}\text{C}\right)$ . Since no heat is lost, ${Q}_{\text{ice}}=-{Q}_{\text{soda}}$ , so that

${m}_{\text{ice}}{L}_{\text{f}}+{m}_{\text{ice}}{c}_{W}\left({T}_{\text{f}}-0º\text{C}\right)=-{m}_{\text{soda}}{c}_{W}\left({T}_{\text{f}}-\text{20º}\text{C}\right)\text{.}$

Bring all terms involving ${T}_{\text{f}}$ on the left-hand-side and all other terms on the right-hand-side. Solve for the unknown quantity ${T}_{\text{f}}$ :

${T}_{\text{f}}=\frac{{m}_{\text{soda}}{c}_{W}\left(\text{20º}\text{C}\right)-{m}_{\text{ice}}{L}_{\text{f}}}{\left({m}_{\mathrm{soda}}+{m}_{\text{ice}}\right){c}_{W}}\text{.}$

Solution

1. Identify the known quantities. The mass of ice is and the mass of soda is .
2. Calculate the terms in the numerator:

and

3. Calculate the denominator:
4. Calculate the final temperature:

Discussion

This example illustrates the enormous energies involved during a phase change. The mass of ice is about 7 percent the mass of water but leads to a noticeable change in the temperature of soda. Although we assumed that the ice was at the freezing temperature, this is incorrect: the typical temperature is $-6º\text{C}$ . However, this correction gives a final temperature that is essentially identical to the result we found. Can you explain why?

We have seen that vaporization requires heat transfer to a liquid from the surroundings, so that energy is released by the surroundings. Condensation is the reverse process, increasing the temperature of the surroundings. This increase may seem surprising, since we associate condensation with cold objects—the glass in the figure, for example. However, energy must be removed from the condensing molecules to make a vapor condense. The energy is exactly the same as that required to make the phase change in the other direction, from liquid to vapor, and so it can be calculated from $Q={\text{mL}}_{\text{v}}$ .

## Real-world application

Energy is also released when a liquid freezes. This phenomenon is used by fruit growers in Florida to protect oranges when the temperature is close to the freezing point $\left(0º\text{C}\right)$ . Growers spray water on the plants in orchards so that the water freezes and heat is released to the growing oranges on the trees. This prevents the temperature inside the orange from dropping below freezing, which would damage the fruit.

what is static friction
It is the opposite of kinetic friction
Mark
static fiction is friction between two surfaces in contact an none of sliding over on another, while Kinetic friction is friction between sliding surfaces in contact.
MINDERIUM
I don't get it,if it's static then there will be no friction.
author
It means that static friction is that friction that most be overcome before a body can move
kingsley
static friction is a force that keeps an object from moving, and it's the opposite of kinetic friction.
author
It is a force a body must overcome in order for the body to move.

why we see the edge effect in case of the field lines of capacitor?
Arnab
what is wave
what is force
Muhammed
force is something which is responsible for the object to change its position
MINDERIUM
more technically it is the product of mass of an object and Acceleration produced in it
MINDERIUM
wave is disturbance in any medium

energy is distributed in any medium through particles of medium.

how.an.equipotential.line is two dimension and equipotential surface is three dimension ?
definition of mass of conversion
Force equals mass time acceleration. Weight is a force and it can replace force in the equation. The acceleration would be gravity, which is an acceleration. To change from weight to mass divide by gravity (9.8 m/s^2).

how many subject is in physics
the write question should be " How many Topics are in O- Level Physics, or other branches of physics.
effiom
how many topic are in physics
Praise
Praise what level are you
yusuf
If u are doing a levels in your first year you do AS topics therefore you do 5 big topic i.e particles radiation, waves and optics, mechanics,materials, electricity. After that you do A level topics like Specific Harmonic motion circular motion astrophysics depends really
